Abstract: There are distinct biological and gender related differences between man and woman. Because of their special reproductive role, women are at risk of some distinctly gender related disorders. A survey of ethnomedicinal plants used in the rural areas of Kerala gave valuable ethnomedico-botanical information regarding plants used for menstrual disorders. The present study enumerates 19 plant species against Menorrhagia, 26 plant species against Dysmenorrhoea, 25 plant species against Oligomenorrhoea, 5 plant species against Hypomenorrhoea, 4 plant species for Amenorrhoea and 18 plant species which can be included in food during menstrual cycle.
